es096bCommissioned by John Li as a gift for Luo Lize. Myrikite is marketed as “American Chicken-blood Stone”—a very hard multicolored stone with bright vermillion red inclusions. The stone was provided by John Li but was extensively shaped to make it look “natural.” A custom base was made from purpleheart wood with an inset for the seal stone.
